- The characters in the name “Furuhata Motoki” (古幡元基) respectively translate to: old (古; furu), flag (幡; hata), origin (元; moto), and fundamental (基; ki).
- Motoki and Makoto eventually dated in this series. Their relationship was basically platonic in the manga and both anime series.
- He did not appear to have a sister (Unazuki) in this continuity.
- Usagi thought Motoki was Tuxedo Mask for a brief time. Furuhata’s actor
Masaya Kikawada later played a masked hero in the 2005 feature film Kamen Rider THE FIRST.
- This version of Motoki was more goofy. Some fans consider Motoki to be a replacement for Gurio Umino, who was absent from the live-action adaptation. Like Umino, Furuhata provided comic relief.
